When selecting military surplus clothing you want to ensure you get an item that delivers on all the important aspects of clothing. Some of these important aspects would be size, condition, quality, and of course price. The French Army Officer's Trench Coat not only meets these criteria but exceeds many of them representing a real value in the military surplus world.
On size, we have never had trench coats in the sizes that we have available for this French Officers trench coat. Most of the time for trench coats we are offered very small sizes with the French coats being very good sizes. For condition, most of the trench coats we purchased came in their original factory boxes having been manufactured but never issued to any officers in the French Army. So you can count on receiving a new to near-new trench coat with the near-new trench coats just showing signs of being in storage. Quality is also here on these trench coats with the intended use by officers the French army wanted to ensure that the coats not only fit well but looked great when being worn. Price is also perfect with commercial trench coats of this quality and condition retailing for much higher prices.

This is a great coat (pun intended) at an unreal price. The quality is there. Note that the sleeves and tail come unhemmed - while this does require some work or additional money, it also allows you to get the precise fit you want.
Was a great deal and came in a long size... important to my long arms. Almost civilian. Might-could work for office work, but it nicely covers the dog walking beat. Not sure how it will function as a raincoat, but most of these things are water repellent shells anyway. And, if the dog gnarls on it- and he will, just a matter of time- I won't be out a lot of cash.
Ordered this coat for an older friend of mine at work. He really likes it and can't believe I got it for less then $15. Came in new condition and a great price point.
This is a beautiful (get many complements) dress-looking coat. It does have to have sleeves and bottom hemmed so you'll have to put your wife to work :) but where else can you get a real nice, office or church worthy, dress coat for that price. They only have interior pockets on one side but are well made and a nice color that goes with anything and does not look military. Even the "dead giveaway epaulets" are not a dead giveaway since civilian rain coats have them as well. Just remember these sizes are CM s0 110 = 44" chest, etc.
If you get dressed up and need an overcoat/raincoat...or you just want a Trench Coat to hide your MP5K, this is the one for you! I'm thinking of buying another so I have a lifetime supply!!
The coat is well made and suitable for wearing to the office. I have a large chest so I ordered tho 100 xl. The longer length keeps me warm and dry during my 1.2 mile walk to the train stop. The coat needs to be hemmed - but still a great value.
Good coat, good value, appears new. Butt. I'm 6 ft, 200lb. I ordered the XL but it won't button with just a tee shirt. Again good product but take into account the difference in sizing.
This french officer trench coat is perfect: it is simple, stylish, and functional. Please note, the one i got had the inside pockets only on one side of the inside of the jacket, which is fine by me. it can hold a book on the inside pocket very well. the sleeves are nice and long, and the jacket liner keeps me warm in moderate cold weather. It is high quality, and came unused. i like it and get lots of compliments from my friends. do not be afraid to go outside in it. it does not look too military. it looks civilian, based on feedback i got from my friends. it is of very high quality, with exceptional stitching, and sturdy buttons. I got it on sale, and would be willing to buy it full price too if i get another one. its that good! if you ever need a functional trench coat that is both simple and stylish, look no further. it is quite warm! I rate this a 10/10, and the guys at keep shooting a amazing and professional. i would shop with them any day.
